Whoa. I finally am able to face this page. I didn't believe I would post a profile photo but I did. Next big step. I am 5'5" and weigh 286 lbs. This is down from my high of 316 lbs. I came back to SP because I had been contemplating having gastric bypass surgery and I needed to lose a little weight to make it safer. No irony there. I've stayed because if this works, and it is thus far, it is a far better approach than surgery. Unfortunately, the surgery was not just about losing weight it was ...
Whoa. I finally am able to face this page. I didn't believe I would post a profile photo but I did. Next big step. I am 5'5" and weigh 286 lbs. This is down from my high of 316 lbs. I came back to SP because I had been contemplating having gastric bypass surgery and I needed to lose a little weight to make it safer. No irony there. I've stayed because if this works, and it is thus far, it is a far better approach than surgery. Unfortunately, the surgery was not just about losing weight it was about controlling what feels like an addiction to sugar. This is actually quite a bit harder to deal with than not getting enough exercise.
So, my goals:
1. Currently walking/jogging 45 minutes 5x a week
Go to 60 minutes 5x a week
2. Currently 286 lbs (February 5, 2011)
Get to 200 by December 15, 2011
3. Currently eating in calorie range 3x a week
Get to eating in calorie range 6x a week by March 3, 2011
By maintaining my calorie range I am also keeping my sugar intake in check.
